One of the oldest bands from the second wave of Black Metal, Marduk has always been one of those groups that has not only set the standards for the genre but also maintained a standard of quality that is hard to match. This album skirts the edges of both Panzer Division Marduk and their last outing, La Grande Danse Macabre, in that there are elements of both LPs not only on the album, but in each individual song. Panzer… was an all-out speed attack that never stopped nor did it slow down until the last song ended. La Grande Danse Macabre was more melodic and slower. World Funeral has speed, power and brutality to spare, but it also has some melodic bits, heavier stuff and all of it is still consistent with Marduk’s sound. Add Legion’s corrosive vocals and you have a package that is sure to peel the paint from your walls and the flesh from your bones. I still think that Legion most resembles the legendary Mayhem vocalist, Dead, when it comes to vocal style and sound. Needless to say, this album is guaranteed to cause whiplash, concussions and the worship of our Lord and Master SATAN!!!
